I’ve recently come up with a new design for my Sheffield Teapots range of illustrations. I wanted to create an entire range of designs that I could turn into different products, but also help me to get to know my new home city (I’ve only been in Sheffield 2 years) and the project just grew from there. The idea behind these designs was to take iconic and well loved places in Sheffield and disguise the buildings as teapots, as everyone loves a brew, particularly in Yorkshire! This design is based on Abbeydale Picture House, an Art Deco cinema on a bustling road into town. As an added twist I’ve taken the whole scene back in time to the 1920s so I could make the most of the wonderful fashions and fast cars!
It’s available in my Etsy shop as a print, card and coaster.
